Appreciate all the input. Think i may be putting 23 boxes of nice tile on CL. The idea of the cold tile doesn't excite me. May look into the wood type flooring with the throw rugs. Thanks for all the different thoughts

Carpet is so 80s or 70s, remember the long shags and the carpet rakes. God I miss them days, especially the big hair. And water beds. Our MH now has the fake tile which is really linnoulm or vinyl. And carpet in the bed room. The next one will be all hardwood through out. I don't even want carpet on the slides. But never seen one without it as it covers the crack. Maybe some porcelain or glass in the bathrooms. And heated floors as we have them in the S&B and even in the shop where the MH stays. Never want another house without them.

It is possible to install wood on slides. It has been done, many times.

Carpet is so 80s or 70s
YUP - and THAT well explains the drift over to hardwoods and tile - more about perceived "fashion" than any REAL particular justifications...

I mean, we REALLY wanna fit in with the "in crowd", after all!

We have tile on all our downstairs floors in the house, and Pergo wood laminate upstairs - the downstairs floors MUCH colder in Winter, regardless of air temps - the wood laminate much warmer to the feet.

BEST and most "warm" floor of all, both temp AND appearance? Here's the OEM carpet in our '88 Winnie - after 25 years or so:

YUP - "SOOOoooo 80's and 70's", as is the MH itself - a personal choice for sure, and *WE* wouldn't have it ANY other way!

AND yeah, I realize that to be "modern" and "with it", we'd need to paint the walls and cabinets "operating room white", install all new tile, and to fully fit it out, cover the couch and chairs with vinyl or leather...

To us, RVing is about comfort - not as a fashion statement!
